    9 years in the making

    List of things that went wrong over the last 9 years of getting this engine goin.

    Faulty tps
    Sent emm away for assessment, ended up at the guy that likes rtv instead of the gel
    EMM sent to Lakeside tech for repair
    Installed wrong fuel pump, draw too high amps
    Starter motor working but didn't crank fast enough to start the engine, took a while to work out.
    Broke the lands on the pto cylinder, rebuilt the top end on all 3 cylinders.
    Circlip wasn't installed correctly on mag cylinder, ate the new piston, got honed out to 0.5mm oversize.
    Fuel pump caused a few dramas.
    Faulty starter solenoid
    Crushed the Cas cable under manifold, that took some head scratching to work out
    Walked the boat back to the trailer a few times.
    The woodruff key was broken and the stator was giving the emm the wrong signal for the injector.



    So after never giving up, reading hundreds of comments, threads and topics I've finally got it running.

    I do not know why your video is not appearing in your post (not for me, at least)

    Update:
    Apparently when using iPadOS 15 I must select ‘Request Mobile website’ from the Safari menu bar in order for me to see the posted inline YouTube video.

    I just upgraded to iOS 15 yesterday. Now I know how to fix it on my end.
    Hopefully eventually either Apple or GH forum will correct the underlying cause.

    Not sure, I can see the thumbnail of the YouTube clip.

    Also while you did tell my to do my own searches for info via your signature, frustrating at the time because I was after answers the wealth of knowledge you have taken time to write up the info that got my boat going, so thanks for your time. Appreciate it
